Quiet little play day

Hi there!

Well I know it has been a month, oh my goodness!  Someone slap me!  Well, I will try to write a few posts to let you know what I've been up to since I last wrote.  But today I am really excited to share with you some things that I have been working on the last couple of days, when I had some quiet time to just sit down and create!

When you get busy and go a few days without stamping, don't you just find something really relaxing about sitting down and realizing hours later a feeling of inner peace and calm.  Then you look up at all the cuteness that you created!  Well that's how I have felt the past 2-3 days.  I told myself I was just going to sit down and open some new things (toys, I mean work tools) and start by CASEing a couple of things from the catalog.

Here's the CASE that started the roll...   Debbie came over and we wanted to use the new Hamburger Box Die and thought we'd start with this sample on page 17.  We used the same supplies as listed in the catalog. 

Well we liked it but we weren't in love with it.  Maybe because ours is missing the pie!

Then we decided to open my French Fry Box Die and started with the sample on page 59 but had to substitute most things because I did not have the set they used (gasp, I know, something I don't own!).  It turned out pretty cute but I think it really needs some candy and the big Bermuda Bay Striped Ribbon bow!!  Then it'll look complete!

Summary of Supplies
I used the Starburst Framelit (tangerine tango) and Four Frames (melon mambo) with the Decorative Label punch and Tape It (crushed curry) and the Scallop Oval punch (bermuda bay) and So Very Happy (greeting stamped in bermuda bay) and the Large Oval punch.  Lots of dimensionals and the new large Polka Dot embossing folder.

If you could only see my classroom and what a mess I've got going!

Cheers! Come back tomorrow to see more!~
